Concert Synopsis

The Bach Choir is joined by children from our Outreach Project to present Mr Lear, Nonsense and Rhyme.

Rediscover the magical world of Edward Lear and other nonsense songs: the table and chair who learned to walk, the melancholy reminiscences of Uncle Arly, the Sunday outing of the Broom, Shovel, Poker and Tongs, the tale of the broken-hearted Yonghy-Bonghy-Bò, and the courtship of the Owl and the Pussycat, all linked together by narrations and limericks.
